SPRING & SUMMER

Spanish Flair is In the Air!

Did you read my post on the top 10 fashion trends for spring 2016? The Spanish look is one of them.spanish style dresses for women

At Fashion Week designers took Spanish inspired clothing to extremes. There were lots of gigantic flamenco ruffles, hot/bold prints and a slew of super lacy pieces, all which may have left you wondering whether the look was more runway than reality.

As it turns out, Spanish inspired clothes can work for the average gal.  There are lots of fabulous things out there that fit with our lifestyle, but also add a nice dash of drama. Here are 3 Latin looks you’re sure to love.

Say Ole in a Spanish Red Wrap Dress

The most obvious way to get on board with this trend is to wear something in a hot Spanish hue.  Be prepared to command the room in this bullfighter red wrap dress that highlights your waist and bust, and flatters your curves. A touch of gold jewelry and some nude accessories is all you need to sizzle.

Be a Sexy Senorita in an Open Shoulder Top 

Another element of fashion’s new Spanish trend is the emphasis on the shoulder. You’ll find a lot of off the shoulder tops in stores which are really lovely, but not always so practical. Instead, why not try an open shoulder top? It gives you more coverage, but you still get that sexy vibe.

This cute, black, cold shoulder top has slightly ruffled drop sleeves that makes it feminine and alluring. The wide straps allow you to wear your regular bra, no problem.  Add a pair of jeans, some cork wedges, and some funky accessories, and you’ve got a great up-to-the-minute, weekend date night look.

Look Ravishing in Ruffles

Ruffles are another thing that comes to mind when you think about Flamenco style. You’ll find many fiery print dresses that capture that dance feel but aren’t too over the top. A little flounce goes far when you are after the Spanish inspired look. Black accessories ground the print and add elegance.

Will you be wearing the Spanish trend this spring?

  1. These fashions are lovely. For a 70 year old senior, slender, petite lady as myself; I need to tweek these styles quite a bit. We just don’t see seniors dress this way in Colorado. I enjoy looking at the fashions and they definitely give me some ideas that work for me. Enjoy the warm weather.
